This year we are studying each of the fifty states. This fall, we took a break from our textbook and typical geography activities to choose our favorite state and research it a bit further.
After choosing a state, we used our Not Grass History book to reread what we have learned about each state. We also took out a few of our favorite books on states!
Then we began recording our research on our state research pages (you can grab those here).
This was a great opportunity to work on spelling, writing complete sentences, and listing information logically.
Once we gathered all of our information, we moved on to creating our mobiles! Check out ours and a few of my students' mobiles below!
Technology can be fun, but old school projects are simply the best!
